Dental Multi Material 3D Jetting

multi material

by Kateryna Filippovych, Process lead, Océ, a Canon company

Imagine 3D printed full color artificial teeth for permanent use. Why not? This question we asked ourselves two years ago. And our scientific curiosity resulted in first multi material and -color 3D jetted tooth model.
Driving vision is to bring dentistry on a new level of multi-material and colourful 3D printing.
This presentation will provide some insights on the unique jetting possibilities of biocompatible dental resins in combination with 3D workflow software.

3D Guided Endodontics

Guided Endodontics

by Andres Torres, Endodontic specialist, KU Leuven (OMFS-IMPATH), Belgium

This presentation will focus on the latest techniques used in endodontics to achieve success even in the most difficult cases helped by 3D design and printing technologies.
In this method, a digital impression of the patient’s jaw is taken and registered to the data from a CBCT scan. Then, a path for the treatment is created up to the target location on the CBCT scan. Finally, a guide for the bur being used during treatment is designed by means of a computer-aided design (CAD) software and printed using a 3D printer.
The concept of 3D Guided endodontics is becoming a valuable tool among clinicians as it seems to be a promising technique offering a higher predictable outcome and lower risk of iatrogenic damage. Minimally invasive treatment can be performed, and chair-side time can be reduced.

3D printing a new jaw

A Syrian man, whose face was blown off in civil war, receives 3D printed jaw implant – the miracles of modern medical device development. As he stood on a Syrian street in his civil war-ravaged country, a 23-year-old man was suddenly dropped to the ground as a rifle round shattered his lower jaw and blew his teeth to bits.
